I agree with Sal that before the season is over, SIU will play a part in the conference. I don't care if ISUZU or Boredly wins; let them knock each other out. The Salukis will have it together by mid-season.

Wow, this is going to be a tough game. My husband is an ISU grad and I went to Bradley. Both are tremendous schools, and about the same academically, but the hoops rivalry is like Duke-UNC in Illinois.

Winning in Peoria for any team is very, very tough; I think the ISU undefeated season comes to an end tonight.

I think NOT OVER may be a bit delusional. I cant see SIU finishing any higher than 5th behind ISU, Evansville, Creighton, and Bradley although maybe not in that order.
